Easter Nest Treats and Free Printables + Egg-Citing Giveaway

Easter candy is some of my favorite candy! Especially when you are talking about the REESE’S Eggs. Why do they always seem to be 10x better than the regular cups? I have a fun Easter candy treat, a couple of really cute printables and some basket filler ideas to share with you today. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

I LOVE Cadbury mini eggs {slightly obsessed} so your little treats look amazing. ANd those printables are adorable too! And thanks for the giveaway. Your treats are my favorite but otherwise I would choose the Easter Nest Cupcakes. 🙂

Melissa Coleman March 10, 2014 - 1:28 PM

Thanks Claire! 🙂 I love the mini cadbury’s too. Now my daughter on the other hand is a fan of the larger Cadbury eggs.

I’m hungry for candy now! And I want to come to your house for Easter! This is all so cute!
Oh my favorite tradition- hiding eggs for the kids! 🙂

Melissa Coleman March 10, 2014 - 1:26 PM

Haha! We won’t need any candy from the bunny in this house. We are on candy overload right now. haha

Robin (Masshole Mommy) March 10, 2014 - 1:10 PM

I don’t know if I would have enough mini eggs left to make these LOL! They are my weakness.

Melissa Coleman March 10, 2014 - 1:25 PM

They are good aren’t they. 🙂

Laura MyNewestAddiction March 10, 2014 - 1:23 PM

Gorgeous creation! 😀 I love cute easter candies!

Melissa Coleman March 10, 2014 - 1:29 PM

That is super cute and a great way to do something other than the regular basket.

Karen Humphries March 10, 2014 - 2:33 PM

Yum! I just love the Cadbury mini eggs, my personal favorite! I think my four yr old daughter would love to make the little cup critters filled with goodies for her cousins as gifts, we’re going to give it a go! Cute downloads too, thank you!

Jennifer March 11, 2014 - 8:54 AM

Sometimes I’m more excited that there are mini eggs again than I am that the weather is warming up! 😀 lol These really look yummy!

Melissa Coleman March 11, 2014 - 8:55 AM

Right? I love Reese’s eggs season. haha!

Cassie @ Southeast by Midwest March 11, 2014 - 4:33 PM

Those nests look yummy, although I might have to leave the coconut off 🙂

Melissa Coleman March 11, 2014 - 5:57 PM

You could definitely leave the coconut off. There wasn’t enough that I could really taste it to be honest, pretty much just for “nest” decoration.

Laura March 11, 2014 - 7:45 PM

Those Easter Nests look yummy! Maybe have to give them a try!

Merrissa March 16, 2014 - 11:29 AM

So cute, love it!!

Melissa Coleman March 16, 2014 - 11:51 AM

Thanks Merrissa! 🙂

Melissa Coleman March 18, 2014 - 3:35 PM

That is awesome that you still give your son and daughter in-law a basket. My mother-in-law does that and coming from the adult who still gets candy at Easter we love it. 🙂

Leah B March 18, 2014 - 3:42 PM

I love the idea of using paper towel rolls to create bunnies on the Hershey’s site. A favourite tradition we just started is creating “bunny footprints” out of chalk on the driveway coming to the door for the kids to see on Easter morning. That way they know the bunny has really been here!

Melissa Coleman March 18, 2014 - 6:14 PM

I like the bunny footprints. We haven’t done that but it is a really cute idea.

Nancy Loring March 21, 2014 - 2:41 PM

Our family’s tradition is getting a new outfit for Easter. I did this when I was little and so did my mom. My daughters and I will be making the robins egg wreath.

Melissa Dealmeida March 21, 2014 - 5:58 PM

The Easter Bunny Racers look like so much fun! Our family’s Easter tradition is to have a nice dinner at my house and hide eggs for the kids!

Karen Drake March 22, 2014 - 5:37 AM

Our favorite Easter tradition is coloring Easter eggs, my daughter is 22 and we still do it. My favorite recipe is for the MOUNDS Coconut Easter Basket Cake, I would love to make it for Easter it looks delicious.

matt lehman March 22, 2014 - 10:39 AM

Melissa Coleman March 23, 2014 - 3:43 AM

That is awesome Matt, always a fun time. 🙂
